Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encode PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a lot of organizations which create paid script applications, so if you acquire such an application for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to shield your program code and ensure that your website visitors or clients won't be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. No matter which cloud web hosting plan you get, you can take advantage of the software instrument to guarantee that any kind of script app which requires it will function properly within your account. Using a handy software instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of settings with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you will not have any difficulties. In the exact same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, and whenever you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform allows you to take advantage of a couple of PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can activate the tool for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you won't have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
